Horizon E56 Motor Yacht

Located in Sanctuary Cove.

The experience of 38 years in the marine industry has been a major influence when, the previous owners of HORIZON Australia, ordered this boat for themselves. It’s not only fully optioned but also furnished with the very best of décor and appointments. Serviced and maintained to an impeccable standard.

This Horizon E56 is the only one of its kind, the hull sides are painted in a metallic 2 pak ‘Porsche Meridian colour’. The interior features Walnut timbers with cream Ultra Leather lounges and earth tones hi-lights. The Horizon 56 is a big volume World Class Cruiser featuring high ceilings throughout and ample natural lighting with its use of smart glass [UV/heat limiting] ceiling panels. The bedrooms and bathrooms are bigger than most cruisers this size especially the master with a huge bathroom/shower and separate walk in wardrobe.

With all the latest electronic aids this E56 can be easily handled by 2 at the same time, its ideal for a large family, guests and even puppies with its recessed side decks. It’s well optioned for extended coastal cruising with features such as Garmin Nav system with 2 large touch screens and 2 smaller screens and another screen in the master cabin. Features forward facing sonar [from C Map contours], long range HD open scan radar, radar overlay, AIS, Auto pilot, wind sensor, depth sounder and alarms, safe ‘cruise-to’ mode, deck and engine room cameras. All can be managed with the Garmin watch or iPad Wi Fi connectivity. Garmin marine radio with two stations and intercom. This E56 also has the optional long range 2,750Ltr fuel tank.

Manoeuvring is made easy with bow and stern thrusters plus the wireless dual band ‘Yacht Controller’ operating gears and thrusters remotely whilst walking around the decks. The 3.8mtr RIB Horizon RIB [with Yamaha 30hp power trim oil injected outboard] can be easily launched is just 30 seconds with the extra large hydraulic swim platform.

Whilst the E56 is a large volume cruiser the 715hp Caterpillar Diesels can push this boat to 28 knots max. Fuel and extra load makes little difference to the performance. A good cruising speed can be around 21knots at around 1900rpm at around 80ltrs per side. The engines and the Onan gen set have just been serviced with nil hours since.
